Mar Del Cabo in Los Cabos is bringing the heat to summer with its new aphrodisiac taco tasting menu. Foods considered aphrodisiac either resemble a female or male body part or its chemical composition is said to arouse sexual desire. Available at the hotel’s oceanfront Encanto Restaurant, each taco is carefully crafted with ingredients to bring flavor and get the mood set. Below are the tacos offered on the new menu through the summer.
- Kimchi Burrito – Ingredients like mango, marine watercress, and fleur de sel topped with seawater foam are served in a burrito made with a whole napa cabbage leaf. The shape of the taco slightly resembles that of a particular male body part, while mangoes are also considered the King of Fruits in Southeast Asia because of their aphrodisiac qualities. The lingering taste of sweet, spicy and salty of this burrito will set you up for the next course.
- Baja Style Oyster Taco – Although no studies have proven the actual aphrodisiac qualities of oysters, these juicy mollusks probably have the strongest placebo effect out of all aphrodisiac foods. In this taco, a battered oyster is topped with an asparagus slaw dressed with sweet and spicy honey in a fresh jicama shell for a light crunch. Asparagus and honey are also regarded as aphrodisiac food due to high levels of Vitamin E and Potassium.
- Avocado Taco – All considered aphrodisiac foods, from the saffron and ancho chile in the handmade tortilla, to the cubes of avocados marinated in olive oil, fenugreek, pine nuts and baby arugula. The chile peppers contain capsaicin which is known to boost testosterone levels and increase libido.
- Sweet Taco – Served on a cocoa and black pepper handmade tortilla, this taco boasts a caramelized heirloom Dominican plantain topped with strawberries macerated in white balsamic vinegar and doused with Damiana-infused whipped cream. The local Damiana Herb was used by Ancient Mayan tribes as well as the local Pericu Indians, who were the first habitants of the Baja Peninsula, as an aphrodisiac flower.
Reserved for guests only, Mar del Cabo’s aphrodisiac taco tasting menu costs $30, inclusive of an amuse-bouche and a glass of prosecco to start off the tasting. Experience must be requested 7 days in advance. For more information on Mar del Cabo and to book, call 1.844.314.2352, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://mardelcabo.com/.
